Our franchise system provides a complete turnkey operation. Allowance has been made in the start-up costs for all franchise fees, training, assistance with site selection, shop-fitting expenses, legal fees, equipment, supplies and inventory.
Your exact start-up costs will vary depending on the location, size and other property factors and the equipment specification, but the initial investment to open a Mail Boxes Etc. store ranges from around £60,000 to £70,000. Up to 70% of this cost can be funded by a loan from a high-street bank (subject to status). Your initial personal investment could be as little as £25,000.
Need help raising funds?
It could be a lot easier than you think. As a trusted and established franchise, Mail Boxes Etc. is seen as a sound investment by most major banks who will view your application very favourably.
Many of our franchisees have already been able to secure as much as 70% of their funds through loans, meaning your own personal investment could be as little as £25,000.
Turnover for mature Mail Boxes Etc. stores generally varies between £100,000 and £600,000 a year, with most stores aiming for a 65% gross margin.
We also run a scheme where a referral fee is paid to our current franchisees who recommend a friend or colleague who goes on to purchase an MBE franchise.
